Like Ged’s parents, Kemmerich’s mom coped with her son’s death by being told that they died bravely and did not suffer. Paul helps Kemmerich’s mom cope by telling her that “He died immediately. He felt absolutely nothing at all. His face was quite calm.” (181) Since the parents do not get to experience the war, when they get told that the soldiers passed away in a very peaceful manner it makes it easier for them to accept it; otherwise, if they got told the real way their kid or someone they knew died, they would feel guilt and remorse for allowing them, or even encouraging them, to join the
Dewey Dell did not regret the decision of going to Jefferson for selfish reasons. She regretted trying to get an abortion from the “doctor” she went to see. Most people would understand her decision, but that should not have been her main focus of her trip. Dewey Dell and her mother never really speak before Addie dies, but she was still Dewey’s mother. A death of a family member, even one a person is not close to, is still a sad occasion and said family member should be given a proper burial.
She does not care that she kills someone or when someone she admits to loving dies, shows no grief or caring. After Daisy kills Myrtle while driving, she continues to drive and does not seem to regret her decision. Nick describes Daisy and Tom after the accident by saying that “they weren't happy [...] and yet they weren't unhappy” (Fitzgerald 145). Basically, Daisy feels indifferent about the fact she killed her husband’s mistress. Another example of Daisy’s carelessness is when Gatsby, a man she says she loved, dies, and she does not attend his funeral or show any signs of grief.
After facing directly with the sorrow, he writes in the letter, “She’s dead and that’s it” (Coupland, 35). Jason’s grief is eased. While Jason’s process of managing grief is built on facing with it and self-reflection, Julie deals with hers by helping accomplish her beloved’s goal. Julie experiences grief after her husband’s death. Her life is meaningless because there are no goals for her to fight for: nothing really matters after the tragedy.
They want to hope for a last minute “miracle” instead of a sad ending. In the example of Laura Perry, they were kept in the dark on the mother's condition even after they requested a discussion. She was given silence and generic explanations. In the example of Mr. Ernest John, he was in intensive care at an I.C.U., it was not until he left that the family was informed about his condition. His family “ had a frank talk, a conference with his entire medical team, about his future”.
After many years of avoiding and being angry at her parents, Walls finally goes to her father to forgive him after she found out that he was dieing. The author stated “"Now, no snotslinging or boohooing about 'poor ol'Rex,'" Dad said. "I don't want any of that, either now or when I'm gone." I nodded. "But you always loved your old man, didn't you?"
I think Skloot decided to make this chapter so brief to not focus too much on her death. The book is called the immortal life of Henrietta Lacks, not the death of Henrietta Lacks. There is no reason to dwell on her death because the book is about her cells and who she was as a person. Skloot probably decided not to describe the final moments of Henrietta’s life due to the fact that Henrietta was probably in a lot of pain and it was a sad time for her family. Henrietta’s family most likely did not want to talk about either.
Who was here?” (Bradbury 16). It is clear that Mildred, the protagonist's wife, has no apparent fear of death, nor did she even investigate the cause of her suicide attempt. The disregard of human life, is indeed morbid, but its inclusion serves as one of the most important themes of the novel. In what way, could Bradbury's own society have been facing death? While examining suicide rates in the mid-twentieth century, and disturbing trend was established.

If his father passes, then he will have no longer have anyone to accompany him on the journey of life. He uses his poem to urge to the sick that they cannot give up and leave everyone alone. From going through the recent death of my grandmother, I can assure from personal experience that sometimes the burden placed on the caregiver can be more strenuous than the battle that the loved one is fighting. The caregivers are the ones that struggle with trying to understand why this is happening to someone they love so much. I know my mother and I sat for hours in the hospital listening to how content and happy my grandmother sounded and we questioned night after night why was this her time to be fading away from us.
